Updated with quotes for October 2014:

Classic:
The best way to make y'self feel better is to get y'hands to workin.... When you put y'hands to something and make it somethin else, that will heal you lower places than you cry from.
— A. J. Verdelle, The Good Negress, 1995.

 

Direct:
Our species has come this far only because our ancestors learned to work. We today can move history forward, but only by imposing comparable discipline upon ourselves.
First Sociology, 1982, p. 216.

Garden moment for October:

Because Monarch butterflies are rare in our garden, one resting on Ligularia Desdemona is worth taking a picture of.
